Thursday, 28 January 2015.
A week ago, a major era of my life had ended with the closing of a restaurant I had been visiting for almost 28 years.
Today, it was the beginning of the end for another major era.
Shortly after 1:15 pm, and three days after I had returned to work following a month’s leave, I was informed that:
- The job I had held since 3 December 2000 would soon be redundant
- I had until 27 February to find another position – but if I couldn’t, my employment will end
My 2015 was not even a month old, and already it had gotten off to a very interesting start.
To say the least.
2015 is going to be one of the biggest years of my life.
I may find a new job soon – either at my current employer, or somewhere else. Or I may not.
The last time I applied for a job and went for an interview was in late 1996.
As well, a new job will mean other changes, like meeting new people and (perhaps) no longer working from home.
Also, and aside from the new job situation, if I leave my current employer with my redundancy payout there are other things to consider – both concerns, and opportunities.
My mind is already boggling – but, as I have recently been stressing to family and friends, not worryingly.
Although some of what lies ahead is intimidating, at present I am calm and hopeful.
As my site’s credo says, one day at a time at one hour at a time.
The future is uncertain – but there is a lot of potential.
Until next time, stay well and take care 🙂
